You should be able to download a copy of Vista for free. Burn it to a disk, boot off it, then run the repair as explained in the link in my other response.

Have you tried going into Safe Mode or Last Known Good Configuration? Do you have the Visa disk that came with your computer?

Doing the best I can here... And remember, there's always more than one path to success. :)

Thanks ...yes and no. Been in safe mode many times and only have disks I made. No results using those. Just getting a blinking dash now. J.

Thanks I'll try that. Oops!

I am on my tablet at the mo. I cannot download to it as it's not possible. The laptop can't access the internet. J.
